EXTRA CREDIT: Bathroom Makeover with Delta & Shower Door Giveaway

Delta Shower Door & Bathroom Makeover via homework - carolynshomework (14)Friends, I’m so excited to show you my partial bathroom makeover. You know I’m not a home décor blogger and I know my bathroom isn’t going to win any awards but I am SO thrilled with the progress.

Delta Shower Door & Bathroom Makeover via homework - carolynshomework (1)For years, we only had one bathroom in our house. So it was nearly impossible to do any type of improvement work or we’d be without the bathroom. I lived with the gold shower door frame and pretty much ignored the fact that the bathroom didn’t look great. Once we put in second bathroom, I vowed to pretty up the main bathroom but never found the time.

When Delta contacted me to see if I wanted to take a quiz on which shower door would best fit my needs I decided the time had come. I was going to work on the bathroom and make it pretty.

I found this great tutorial at Somewhat Simple and Steph has a great solution for those pesky plastic mirror clips. Or, if the hubs agrees, I may just get a medicine cabinet with a mirror. I don’t love the cupboard over the toilet and it would make more sense to each have our own storage over the sink like the one below.

I am so thrilled with my new Delta shower door. It was the inspiration I needed to get me moving on my bathroom. Not to mention, the shower door is the main focal point and makes a huge difference on how the bathroom looks. Delta has over 140 design possibilities at any budget level.

  1. It looks wonderful! I love that soft silver finish. Somehow... the shower doors, and maybe the vanity always set the tone for the whole bath! It looks really great. I have a GOLD surround, and while I like it elsewhere, the gold I've got it no bueno!!

  2. Your bathroom makeover looks so pretty! I really like the framed prints on the wall.

  3. The bathroom is looks nice! The orchid is a lovely touch :)
